Not sure where to go in Norwich for a change. Didn't fancy the normal noodle or burger option and came across Chez Denis. How glad I am we did! He is a perfect charming host with such enthusiasm for the menu you just have to try it. We had the chilli beef which was as soft and tender as I've... More

We took the family - daughter, Brazilian son-in-law and 2 grandchildren - 12 and 8 for a special night out. We all love our food and I had read so many amazing reviews we just had to try it for ourselves. Exactly what it says on the tin. Denis is an excellent host and raconteur. The children were welcomed and... More

We always enjoy a meal in this little French Caribbean restaurant: Cajun spices, unusual fish dishes, relaxed atmosphere, generous portions of vegetables at no added charge. Friday and Saturday nights often busy, so booking advised.

We got a table here on a busy Friday night in December, The staff, Denis, and the waiter lad (forgot his name) were fantastic, the food was lovely, the service was spot on and the ambience in this bijou restaurant was relaxed and enjoyable.

I had been meaning to try this place for some time and as my daughter and I were in the shop next door we gave it a look. The place had a very relaxed feel about it and the staff were happy and helpful especially the owner who is quite a card. The food we ordered was well presented and... More

This place is trying to be a trendy bistro, sadly we don't think it managed this for lunch with food, atmosphere or service. We only sat down as the trip reviews were so good. Dirty tables whilst staff chat are never good. The ploughmans lunch came with salad (this appalled my husband!) The baked potato with chilli beef was ok... More

Visited this restaurant on Saturday evening and thought the food was wonderful! Felt very welcome and the choice of food was excellent - difficult to make up your mind with so much on offer! Can't recommend it highly enough. Service was good and will definitely return.
